Staphylococcus aureus is an important pathogen in domestic ruminants. The main objective of this study was to determine the similarity of epidemiologically unrelated S. aureus isolates from bovine, ovine, and caprine hosts regardless the locus of isolation (nares and udder). By pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, seven major pulsotypes were identified among 153 isolates recovered from 12 different regions of France as well as from Brazil, the USA and Belgium. Typing of the accessory gene… CONTINUE READING
